Easy as pie, new sceners will be grown in vats, William Gibson style. It'll be totally cyber.

From that Wired article:

The demo scene is driven by competition, visible at its best in huge three- to five-day demo parties, which take place during the school holidays in mainland Europe. Thousands of young coders attend these events, their latest works proudly on display. Most demos follow a traditional structure - vivid animations, spinning polygons, and assorted video effects, all pulsing to a techno, rock, or jazz soundtrack. (A second, quieter sequence scrolls the credits, comments, and greetings to other coders, often in charmingly bad English.) But the discussions and voting that decide the best are always heated and controversial, because what drives every demo coder is the overwhelming desire to create something new, something spectacular, something cool.

Nothing has changed except for the length of parties. I'd love to see the 5 day parties back though.

When I was playing Civilization 1 in world map not random map, iceland was just 1 or 2 blocks of land iirc. So if I build a city there, there was only one block which I may have irrigated and made railroads for more production and the rest was fish. So my city couldn't go above some population because there was not enough resources or my people would suddenly start dying out of hunger. I couldn't even build many buildings or army because there were no resources to sustain them and they were dissapearing. After a while when a nuclear war started with the Russians, global warming occured and iceland was the first land to sink under water. And so I lost my city (though I never thought of naming it Bjork before :P)

Norway is gonna bail out thoose freaks EUR debt, and reclaim what it rightfully ours. We're gonna make Iceland a JAIL and Retirement home, and send up all criminals an people over 70.
And all the Icelandic artsy fartcy fancy pancy people will be degraded to our slaves working in either the prison system or health care.

We take all their fish and start drilling for oil.
